Murder arrest

 New details on why there was a standoff today in Dedham. The following press release from the Department of public safety explains what was going on.


State Police have arrested a Trenton man and charged him in connection with the death of a second Trenton man, whose body was discovered last weekend.  The victim is  60 year old Richard Bellitieri who may have been missing for more than a year  before his body was found near his home at 318 Goose Cove Road in Trenton Sunday.  The skeletal remains were identified Tuesday evening from dental records  by the State Medical Examiner’s Office, who declared his death a homicide.   Bellitieri, who owned property in Trenton and Mount Desert was last seen alive in June of 2012. No one had reported him missing in the past year, but his disappearance was recently discovered by the Bar Harbor Police Department, which then notified State Police.

Arrested this afternoon is 43 year old William Morse, who was stopped in a car along Route 1A in Holden.   Morse, also known as “Bill Tool” ,earlier in the day was at a house on the Peake’s Hill Road in Dedham and State Police had attempted to make contact with him during the day. Morse apparently slipped out undetected and got a ride with a friend, who was driving the car when it was stopped.  Around 1:30, Morse was spotted at the G and M Store on Route 1A in Holden by MDEA agents and was taken into custody a short time later along the road.   Participating in that traffic stop were State and Ellsworth Police, along with drug agents.  Morse has been taken to the Hancock County Jail.

The two men did know each other . Bellitieri  worked as an accountant, and detectives are seeking anyone who had contact with him prior to his likely disappearance last summer.  In addition, detectives also want to talk to those who have had contact with Morse in the past year. Anyone with information is asked to call State Police in Orono – 866-2122
